    Herman Cain: Jon Stewart Mocked Me Because I'm A 'Black Conservative'

    Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain alleged that Comedy Central's Jon Stewart mocked him during a recent episode of the "The Daily Show" because he's a "black conservative."

    Stewart joked on his show that Cain "offers real solutions to fictional issues." After playing a clip of Cain putting his foot down on the issue of the length of bills, the Comedy Central host impersonated Cain and said, "Bills will be three pages. If I'm president, treaties will have to fit on the back of a cereal box. From now on, the State of the Union address will be delivered in the form of a fortune cookie. I am Herman Cain and I do not like to read."

    At the Iowa Falls Fire Department on Wednesday, Cain responded to the comedic segment.

    "I’m serious about a bill only being three pages the joke’s on him," said the GOP contender. "And I said secondly, as far as him mocking me, look I’ve been called every name in the book because I’m a conservative, because I’m black."

    So why, I wonder, does Stewart mock Newt and Sarah and Huntsman and Romney and Weiner and Biden and Boehner and everyone else he mocks on his show? None of them are black. Not all of them are conservative.

    Oh wait - isn't satire supposed to be mocking?

    Or what's the point?

    Race cards are lazy peoples way of claiming harm in many instances. This is one of them.

    Which pubbie have called a dem a "Uncle Tom" as the term has been applied to black conservatives? Try googling herman cain and uncle tom or clarence thomas and uncle tom or the n word which cannot be mentioned you will get hundred of thousands of hits. Ward Connely garners fewer hits or you could have fun adding democratic underground to the search.

    An example would be helpful.

    Apples and oranges, PF13.

    What democrat has posted or published picture of Herman Cain with a bone through his nose or growing watermelons on the White House lawn or with his face painted like The Joker?

    This thread is not about anyone calling anyone anything - it's about Herman Cain claiming racism is why John Stewart mocked him on The Daily Show when, in fact, John Stewart mocks all presidental candidates on The Daily Show. It's what the show does, fer cryin' out loud.

    I see... so some liberals saying something means all do. By that logic some pubbies being racists and misogynists means that all are.

    Thanks for demonstrating my point so clearly.

    Although I'm not a conservative or repulblican, I'll admit that I love when I read or see a story about an African-American CONSERVATIVE.

    It's just a nice thing to see...in all likehood, that person is financially successful.


    I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see/hear anyone attempt to put forth an argument that says there is something wrong with being black AND conservative.

    Anyone?

    That might be an impressive statement, PR, had you not loved reading and seeing stories about Obama who was an African-American LIBERAL, too - enough to have voted for him on the basis of his being exactly that.

    Why is that? Is "financially successful" synonymous with consevative or do you somehow feel that there is nothing which a poor black person (as opposed to a poor white person) would find attractive in the conservative parties?

    I'm sure you would - but you're probably not going to find one. At least not here, anyhow. I see nothing more wrong with being black and conservative than than I see with with being white and conservative.

    What makes you think anyone would?

    What liberals don't like about "Black Conservatives" is the fact that many, many people the Liberals have been calling Racists will openly support him, that really messes up their little race card game.

    I know you may find it nearly impossible to believe, but some people think it's wrong or strange for African-Americans to be conservatives. Personally, I think it's beautiful!;)

    Why would I find it nearly impossible to believe? You can find some people who think practically anything.
